“David’s class is insanely fun. His skill and attitude make for an inspiring, professional experience in class, and his puppets never fail to make me smile. Unbeatable value for an amazing experience! Go play!” -Russ

For 8  years David has been teaching puppetry classes in NYC: Puppetry For Improvisors levels 1 & 2, Puppetry for TV, Film and Video, and more. In 2014 Paul McGinnis (Crank Yankers, Sesame Street) came on board as an instructor and teaches with us regularly much to the glee of everyone involved.

Announcing our first ever PUPPETRY PRACTICE TECHNIQUES with Paul McGinnis
**Sat Dec. 8 from Noon to 3 pm. @ Ripley Grier Studios**

When you practice monitor puppetry at home, do you get tired of lip-syncing to songs and monologuing? Me, too! Come to this workshop to learn exciting, alternative exercises to improve your monitor skills! Also, we will also go over some very specific skills, like zipping into frame with perfect eye focus every single time! This class is going to be an absolute blast! Don’t miss it!”

We encourage you to bring a puppet that you usually practice with. If you dont have one, thats ok.. let us know and we will bring one for you to use.

“Wow! After studying with David I booked Avenue Q at two different regional theaters! I’ve never known how to bring a puppet to life or even use one, but David gave me all the tools I needed to go on and start my puppeteering journey. I owe him one!”  -Chris
“Taking David’s class was one of the best things I’ve ever decided to do. He’s a supportive teacher and really drives home the fundamentals of puppet performance by utilizing the skills of an improviser.” -Sam
“David’s a pro and knows all the easy techniques to take you from wacko convulsing a sock to puppetMASTER” -Kathy
